Acronym for Wiccan in Name Only. Someone who claims to be Wiccan, but seldom (if ever) observes the festival days or performs the appropriate rituals. Such people claim to know everything about Wicca, but in truth know very little about the religion or its practices.
See Wicclet.
"Cassandra claims that she observed the Samhain rituals, but I know for a fact she spent the night at a Halloween party.
She is such a WiNo."

'Winos' is old slang for drunks/drunkies.

Wino = singular drunk
Winos = plural drunk

How do I know this? I'm Rick James, bitch!
In the Rick James song "Ghetto Life":

"When I was a young boy
Tenements, slums and corner bums
Playing tag with winos
The only way to have some fun
..."

A person with a severe alcohol/drinking problem. A wino has no regard for the quality of the swill he or she ingests, often becoming so incoherent that they begin to indulge in other vices they aren't normally known for such as smoking cigarettes or chewing cherry flavored tobacco by the tin. A "wino" doesn't care about their appearance and frequently can be found stumbling around shirtless and barefoot trying to start fights with passersby for no apparent reason. Any attempt to inhibit the wino's consumption only results in further consumption.
He used to be a learned Doctor but now he's just a dirty old wino who sits in the parking lot in a folding chair and drinks vodka until he fights his friend, throws up and passes out.

Woman in name only. Similar to RINO (Republican in Name Only) or DINO (Democrat in Name Only).

This label applies to Women that run on predominantly male-defined agenda. Sarah Palin, Meg Whitman, Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell are examples. They can be called WINO's - Women in name only; feminists they are not.
That Sarah is such a WINO... she has larger cohones than John McCain.
